Crystal Palace lead the race for Alban Lafont

Toulouse’s teenage wonder-kid goalkeeper Alban Lafont is the subject of ongoing discussions from Crystal Palace, who currently lead the race to sign the French youth international, according to L’Équipe.

The 19-year-old has 98 Ligue 1 appearances to his name, and asked Toulouse for a meeting in February to lay out his intentions to leave the club.

PSV in the Netherlands are the only other current club to have manifested a concrete interest in buying the player this summer.

President Sadran of Toulouse, a notoriously difficult negotiator, intends to be particularly obstinate with regards to Lafont’s future, and any deal this summer will be exceptionally difficult to pull off.
